Choice 5 for September

Modern Rock Review’s Choice 5 for September 2017 features hard rock groups from around the world including Beware of Darkness, Blue Healer, Headzero, Kaleido, and Smokey Fingers.


 

Are You Real? by Beware of Darkness

Are You Real? by Beware of Darkness

California’s Beware of Darkness provides good, crisp rock n’ roll which is heavy enough (and vulgar enough) to almost border on metal territory. Musically, the songs range from in-your-face rocker mold to some pop and electronica sounds.

Promised Land by Smokey Fingers

Promised Land by Smokey Fingers

From Lodi, Italy comes a rock band with an authentic Southern (USA) style sound. Promised Land by Smokey Fingers is entertaining, tight and very well produced with not a weak spot musically throughout its dozen tracks. Highlights include the opener “Black Madame”, the country flavored “The Road Is My Home” and the excellent original, “The Basement”.

Experience by Kaleido

Experience by Kaleido

Kaleido starts with unrelenting energy and never misses a single stride on this relentless run through sound, performances and vocals. Experience features bold tracks like “No More Little Miss Nice Bitch”, a reggae-fused “Trouble In Paradise”, as well as some standard pop material by the Detroit-based band.

Blue Healer

Blue Healer by Blue Healer

Austin’s Blue Healer has produced a self-titled record with good musical approach and interesting, synth-driven compositions. The songs have a knack for taking surprising melodic turns with moments of majesty and fine melody.
